Utah Jazz guard Rodney Hood is expected to be inactive until after the All-Star break, league sources told The Salt Lake Tribune on Saturday night. Hood has missed the past four games with a bone contusion on his right knee, coupled with a Grade 1 lateral collateral ligament (LCL) sprain, after sustaining a right knee hyperextension on Feb. 1 against the Milwaukee Bucks. It was the second time that Hood has sustained that type of injury this season, having originally injured it on Jan. 14 late in a victory against the Orlando Magic.

Jazz starting shooting guard Rodney Hood is expected to miss Saturday’s matchup against the Charlotte Hornets with a hyperextended right knee, but an MRI Hood underwent Thursday morning showed no structural damage, The Salt Lake Tribune has learned. Hood injured the knee making a move to the basket on Wednesday night in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks. It was the same knee Hood injured a few weeks ago against the Orlando Magic. Hood missed time following that game with a bone contusion. This latest injury is not believed to be as serious.
